Hedon Cries was born in 2001 in Argos, Greece. Inspired by bands like Dark Tranquility and My Dying Bride they created their personal atmospheric style combining Swedish death metal sounds with doom metal melodies and lyrics drawn from personal experiences. After several line up changes and a couple of live shows the band entered Praxis Studios (Septic Flesh, Horrified, Rotting Christ, etc) to rec...ord their first album. The album was released by Sleaszy Rider Records in the spring of 2003. The response for "Hate Into Grief" was more than satisfying, and this led to several live performances around Greece. In the end of 2004, the band entered Praxis Studios once again to record their sophomore album. It is titled "Affliction's Fiction" and contains 12 songs with a duration near 70 minutes. What's most important for Hedon Cries is to manage to emit their feelings through their music. They intend to nothing else. This is the main reason they exist!
"The End Of The Path Is Nigh..." is completed self financed and released.

TFR just released Hedon Cries - The End of the Path Is Nigh and I was reading an article on Bile Duct Obstructions (I know how to have a fun on a Saturday night)…haha and well I stop reading to listen.
Thick, smooth, harmonious, exquisite, and I love it!!!
I have been looking for an album like this for a while. I was drawn to the sorrow and pain of this album and it has to be one of my newest favorites. I couldn't get enough. Intimate and I found it to be quite impressive creating a lasting impression, even playing with my own emotions from past memories.
Lyrics are beautiful growling tones of rage, hurt, the music is also perfectly balanced. Heavy guitar and bass riffs delivers a whole new experience of pleasure and adventure in melodic death metal. A tightly-wound album with power and finesse, its intricate structure is extraordinarily balanced, while amazingly rich and builds in intensity.
Favorite tracks on this album Never Again and I Hate You (I suggest printing the lyrics). The pictures by Ana Koren were just beautiful.
